Estate Agent Videos – Orbit Group

Professional Estate Agent Videos

We’ve recently filmed a number of Estate Agent Videos and Construction based films across the UK for the Orbit Group. Orbit is a group of  housing associations providing affordable housing to around 40,000 households in England, mainly in the Midlands, East Anglia and the south east. To coincide with the building of a major City Centre Develop, Blanc Creative were commissioned to work with Orbit and Spicer Haart Estate Agents, to produce a film that would front a sales campaign showcasing the benefits and lifestyle of living in St Annes Quarter Apartments.

St Anne’s Quarter is a new residential & retail development in the heart of Norwich. Situated inside the original city walls, it offers  a selection of studios and one & two bedroom apartments. Located off King St, alongside the River Wensum which flows through the city and on towards Yarmouth and only a short walk from the city centre, the Riverside entertainment area and Norwich’s main line railway station. The development will have a mixture of outright sale, shared ownership, affordable & private rent homes with a small commercial area, which with the New Bridge across the River Wensum, will give quick access to other areas of the city. 

Why Shoot Professional Videos?

It’s a good question? We’e all been online and seen shaky self shot videos of Estate Agents inside a dimly lit property, giving a Homes Under the Hammer styled commentary about how great the property is that they’re marketing. Shooting professional Estate Agent Videos for a client requires a great deal of planing, risk assessment and creativity. Especially when you working in an environment where the a vast amount of the residential homes are still under construction and development and even more so if shooting Professional Drone film in a congested area. Professional Video Marketing throughout social media is now a lucrative advertising tool with a massive market, but content needs to hold the viewers attention, be concise, punchy, professional and deliver a call to action. With most social media sites limiting content time to a maximum of 59 seconds, we decided to produce a social media specific film and a slightly longer version that clients can embed into websites and host on Video Channels such as Youtube and Vimeo.

Full Length Videos can be used on Web Sites, in Show Offices, Industry Exhibitions and a wide range of Digital Media Platforms.


Working with Simon Trigg, Haart Estate Agents Regional Sales Manager, we focused their Estate Agent Videos n not only the high quality of the new apartments and the modern build, but the benefits of purchasing a home in one of the most historical parts of Norwich City Centre. At Blanc Creative, we can lift your property videos to the next level, using our professional camera crew and where possible, Professional Aerial Drone Filming. This allows us to bring each development or property to life with. Estate Agent Videos  should give a prospective buyer the ability to get a feel of a property or the community where their new home is being built. Professionally shot Estate Agent Videos really are the ultimate marketing tool for the modern estate agent, landlord, residential and commercial property developers.

Forest Live Concerts – Drone Filming

Concert Drone Filming For Forestry Commission England

Forest Live Concerts Thetford High Lodge

The opportunities for Commercial Drone Filming at a large concert is something of a rare beast. Drones receive considerably more negative publicity than positive and the ‘perceived’ high risk element of Drone usage at large public gatherings is a subject that has historically caused Concert Promoters to shudder. In all truth, assigning a professional drone operator who is licensed with a Permission For Commercial Operation (PFCO) means that all possible safety elements will be covered as much as is humanly possible.

It therefore came a huge surprise when the chance presented itself to ‘Legally’ provide Licensed Drone Filming and Drone Photography in one of the most beautiful and secluded concert locations in the country, Thetford High Lodge on the Norfolk Suffolk Border.

In 2001, Forestry Commission England chose seven fantastic forest locations to host concerts from a range of international artists. Each summer, open spaces within UK forests are transformed into fantastic concert arenas. The stunning locations are simply unique and the events were so well received, that 2018 will mark the 17th year of Forest Live and access to some of the most impressive artists in the whole of the Music Industry including;

2017 Sir Tom Jones, Rick Astley, Clean Bandit, Craig David, Elbow, Olly Murs

2016 Rudimental, Kaiser Chiefs, UB40 feat. Ali, Astro & Mickey, Tom Jones, Guy Garvey, John Newman, Jake Bugg, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Simply Red, James Bay

2015 Paloma Faith, Tom Odell, The Vamps, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Sam Smith, The Script, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, Spandau Ballet, McBusted, James

2014 Paul Weller, Jessie J, Boyzone, Suede, Rebecca Ferguson, James Blunt, Katherine Jenkins, Deacon Blue, Little Mix and The Pogues.

2013 Paloma Faith, Blondie, Paul Weller, The Script, Olly Murs, Jessie J, The Charlatans, James, Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, Elvis Costello.

For the past four years, the Lee Blanchflower Limited Team have been providing not only Editorial Photography for local press, but have also worked directly with the Forestry Commission & Forest Live to document the family atmosphere and performers who take to the tree lined stage in Thetford Forest each year. The introduction of Drone Filming provided it’s own challenges and this where using a Licensed Drone Operator is so important for businesses that are looking to secure Commercial Drone Filming.

The Civil Aviation authority have a rigorous legislation in place to ensure that Licensed Drone Operators comply with restrictions set in either congested areas or large gatherings in open air places. You can read more about this important subject in our Blogs “Drone Flying in Congested Areas” & “Flying Drones at Large Open Area Gatherings” but in addition to extensive risk assessments, Thetford Forest is nestled conveniently inside a Military Aerodrome Traffic Zone. Working closely with Forestry Commission Management and the Military Air Base, we were able to secure take-off, landing and flight zones that ensured we could maximise Drone Filming and Drone Photography without impacting on Concert Customers or the Military while ensuring a safe flight protocol. Drone filming took place over a period of two days to create material that offered a dual purpose.

Planning – The footage and still imagery was used to document all aspects of the Concert site and incorporated everything from car parking, placement of vendors, toilets, amenities and arena details. This was particularly useful for organisers when planning for future events.

Promotional – Drone filming gives a totally different perspective of the venue and showcases the phenomenal venue and scale of Forestry that the concert Arena sits within at Thetford. Drones offer an affordable, flexible means of capturing aerial imagery and an eco friendly option when compared to other means of photographing or filming from the air.
